Commenting on today’s speech by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson on offshore wind, the Industry Chair of the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC) Benj Sykes said:

“Offshore wind is on track to become the backbone of Britain’s electricity system, providing reliable, low-cost clean power to homes and businesses across the country. The industry is investing tens of billions of pounds in new offshore wind projects, supporting local economies and employment in communities across the UK. Our global leadership in offshore wind, coupled with new support for investment in ports, will help unlock the huge opportunity for the UK to build a world-leading, competitive supply chain”.
